Singapore Airlines to launch non-stop Singapore - Los Angeles flights

From November this year, Singapore Airlines has confirmed it will launch non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles using the new Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) aircraft. The airline also stated it will increase its non-stop flights to San Francisco from Singapore to 10 per week, which will bring the total US-bound flights for SIA to 27.

The first non-stop Los Angeles service will start on 2nd November and is scheduled to be flown three times a week initially. SQ38 will depart Singapore on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. When the second A350-900ULR enters service the schedule to Los Angeles will be increased to a daily operation from 9th November. Then from 7th December 2018, a further three services per week will be added, using the flight number SQ36, lifting total non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles to 10 times per week.

With the introduction of non-stop services between Singapore and Los Angeles, SIA’s existing one-stop service to Los Angeles via Seoul will come to an end on 30th November 2018. Singapore-Seoul frequency will be maintained at four flights per day with the introduction of a new Singapore-Seoul return flight from 1 December 2018, operating as flight SQ612. Together with SIA’s current daily one stop service to Los Angeles via Tokyo, Los Angeles will be served 17 times per week.


SIA will also be increasing frequency on the existing Singapore-San Francisco route with three more weekly flights, with effect from 28 November 2018. The three additional services will operate as SQ34, departing every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to San Francisco and will complement existing daily SQ32 non-stop services. Together with SIA’s current daily one-stop service to San Francisco via Hong Kong, San Francisco will also be served 17 times per week.

“Our US services have always been popular with our customers and we are pleased to be able to provide even more travel options with the launch of non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles, and an increase in frequency on the existing non-stop Singapore-San Francisco route,” said Singapore Airlines CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.

“Together with our non-stop flights between Singapore and New York that will launch in October, SIA will redefine the convenience of travelling between Singapore and the United States, delivering on our promise to constantly enhance the travel experience of our customers.”

SIA will be the first airline in the world to operate the A350-900ULR, with seven on firm order with Airbus. This ultra-long-range aircraft will be configured in a two-class layout, with 67 Business Class seats and 94 Premium Economy Class seats. SIA’s existing A350-900s feature a three-class layout with 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy Class and 187 Economy Class seats.
